No cookies this year (it's not traditional in my family, anyway), but we're making the following "sweet treats":

- Gift of the Magi Bread (recipe is at http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/G...the-Magi-Bread but that's not where I got it; our old family recipe is nearly verbatim to this. But, seriously, this is the best tasting thing at the Christmas table!)
- A traditional Christmas pudding
- Mock Toffee (recipe at http://www.bhg.com/recipe/candy/mock-toffee/)
- Peanut butter potato candy (traditional Appalachian recipe)
- Homemade fudge
- Peppermint ice cream

We bought stollen and petits fours, and we usually end up making truffles out of the leftover dried fruit, so I'm not too sad about the lack of cookies! I won't miss them.
